Retired NFL players typically have plenty of options when it comes to using their football talent and skill set after their playing career is over. Many become analysts on television and radio, while others transition into a coaching or front office role.
However, Green Bay Packers all-time leading rusher Ahman Green found an innovative way of using his football background: teaching a young baseball player the best ways to train.
Prior to the 2012 Major League Baseball season, Cuban defector Yoenis Cespedes was in the Dominican Republic. While waiting for contract offers to determine which team he'd join, Cespedes now with the Oakland Athletics -- was working out and preparing himself for the transition to baseball in the big leagues.
In one of Cespedes' workout videos produced by his agency, Green mysteriously popped up 24 minutes into a 28-minute showcase of Cespedes' athletic prowess.The two were working their way across a rope in the Jarabacoa River.
But how did...

Believe it or not Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was the first person that I thought of when the terms of Drew Brees’ new contract were announced.
The reason being is that at 33 years-old Brees is getting $20 million a year for what will most likely be his last huge payday.
At this point will Rodger try to squeeze as many as two record breaking paydays out his NFL lifespan?
There is no question the Green Bay Packers are one of the best teams in the NFL heading into the 2012 season. Will the only team to go 15-1 last year, go 16-0 this season? Let’s take a look.
Perhaps the most significant factor in a run at perfection is the strength of schedule.
Based on last years records, only New England has an easier schedule. Green Bay opponents combined...

By now, everyone, especially the Green Bay Packer faithful, are well aware of the Packers’ 32nd ranked defense, thanks in large part to giving up over 500 yards of total offense in their last regular season game against the Detroit Lions. There is no doubt that the focal point of this training camp will be the re-tooling of this defense, with the key additions of rookies like...
It's been more than four years since Brett Favre last wore a Green Bay Packers uniform, but according to the three-time NFL Most Valuable Player, he still has no relationship with the franchise he spent 16 years leading to 172 wins and one Super Bowl championship."I don't really have one," Favre told Deion Sanders in an interview on the NFL Network. "It'...

Nearly 14 years after coaching his last game in Green Bay, Holmgren will join Vince Lombardi, Bart Starr, Reggie White and many other legendary former Packers with an induction ceremony in his honor.Holmgren led the...
With three young building blocks — T.J. Lang, Josh Sitton and Bryan Bulaga — the Packers' offensive line could be one of the NFL's better units
One of these days — though not anytime soon — the Packers plan on extending an olive branch toward Brett Favre, who spent 16 seasons solidifying his legacy in Titletown only to have it come down in one fell swoop. Although Favre departed on not-so-great terms, GM Mark Murphy wants to formally retire his number, as most teams do with its iconic players.
The sentiment appears...
Led by Jermichael Finley, the Packers will take seven tight ends to training camp. Last season, they carried five on the regular-season roster.
Brett Favre says he has no relationship whatsoever with Packers.
To take his game to the next level, the Packers would love Jermichael Finley to take a step back to his dominant start to the 2010 season. Plus, our breakout performer, player on the bubble, sleeper and more as we analyze the tight end group.
The deepest and best group in the league is led by Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson and their combined 24 touchdown receptions.
